My profession is all about non-medical, in-home care and assistance to seniors in need. The compassionate caregivers I employ are highly-trained and experienced in many levels of home care, and they can help you or your senior loved one, even in the midst of COVID, or when under hospice care.
November is National Home Care & Hospice Month, and I would be remiss to not offer props and recognition for the amazing, tireless work of in-home caregivers and hospice nurses. These essential workers are dedicated to serving seniors in ways most people cannot.
Senior home care is my specialty, and the services delivered by Home Helpers® caregivers are wide-ranging for seniors living alone and those dealing with or recovering from illness, rehabilitation or hospitalization.
- Companion Care – Caregivers offer companionship to maintain senior engagement and activity to prevent feelings of isolation, loneliness and depression.
- Personal Care – Caregivers help with basic activities of daily living, including hygiene and nutritional needs, so seniors stay in their homes living more enriched, engaged, and independent lives.
- Homemaker’s Services – Caregivers help with homemaker’s services that help create a safe, clean, and comfortable living environment, so you or your loved one can stay at home, living independently with a greater sense of confidence and security.
- Meal Planning/Shopping/Prep – Caregivers plan, shop and prepare meals according to your dietary needs, so clients get the healthy, nutritious food they want and need, without the difficulty of trying to prepare meals for themselves.
- 24-Hour Home Care – Home Helpers® 24-hour care ensures a compassionate caregiver will be with you or your loved one at all times.
- Wake-up/Tuck-In – Caregivers can be there to help seniors or differently-abled individuals, at the start and end of their day, with wake-up and tuck-in services to accommodate special routines.
- Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care – Home Helpers® dementia caregivers receive specialized training and are highly experienced in dementia care; and many are certified in Alzheimer’s care through our partnership with the National Certification Board for Alzheimer Care (NCBAC).
- Recuperative Care – Our caregivers lend comfort and assist with the recovery efforts of clients having had major surgery, so they can recuperate safely at home.
- Stroke Recovery Support – Caregivers offer comprehensive stroke recovery care that meet a stroke patient’s unique needs and requirements.
- Respite Care – Respite care provides the break family caregivers need to refresh and recharge. It is a planned break from care-giving routines that still allows your loved one to be cared for at home, where they are most comfortable.
- Wellness Calls – Caregivers can help seniors stay healthier at home with daily reminders about medications and/or physician-ordered directives. We also have advanced technology for monitoring through Direct Link®.
- 24-Hour Monitoring – Effective monitoring services and medical alert systems like Direct Link® provide a safe, secure solution to these obstacles, independence for seniors and others requiring in-home care, and peace of mind for those who care for them.
I have had the experience of caring for seniors at home as they transitioned to hospice care. A hospice nurse would visit regularly to provide palliative care and make the final leg of the patient’s earthly journey as comfortable as possible. Hospice care does not include treatment of underlying diseases, but rather, therapeutic applications and medications to help relieve pain and ease discomfort.
The American Cancer Society explains, “Hospice care is a special kind of care that focuses on the quality of life for people and their caregivers who are experiencing an advanced, life-limiting illness. Hospice care provides compassionate care for people in the last phases of incurable disease, so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible.”
I want to recognize the amazing work of all caregivers who provide in-home care and hospice nurses who do everything they can to help seniors transition through the final leg of their life. Your hard work and dedication will never go unnoticed by the staff at Home Helpers®, my family or me.
